Gino Marinuzzi
1882 - 1945
G. Marinuzzi
Gino Marinuzzi (24/03/1882 - 17/08/1945) was an Italian conductor and composer, particularly associated with Wagner and the Italian repertory. Marinuzzi was born and studied in Palermo, and began his career there as well, conducting the local premieres of Tristan und Isolde in 1909, and Parsifal in 1914. He then appeared in Rome and Milan, where he conducted several local premieres (mostly Wagner operas) and many revivals of rarely performed operas such as Lucrezia Borgia, La straniera, Beatrice di Tenda and L'incoronazione di Poppea. He made guest appearances at the Paris Opera, the Royal Opera House in London, and the Monte Carlo Opera, where he conducted the world premiere of Puccini's La rondine in 1917. He was artistic director of the Lyric Opera of Chicago from 1919 to 1921, and the Rome Opera from 1928 to 1934. He was reputed for his "grand style" inherited from the post-romantic tradition. He left a noted recording of La forza del destino from 1941, with Maria Caniglia, Galliano Masini, Carlo Tagliabue, Ebe Stignani, Tancredi Pasero, and Saturno Meletti. He composed three operas: Barberina (Teatro Massimo, Palermo, 1903), Jacquerie (Teatro Colon, Buenos Aires, 1918), and Palla de' Mozzi (La Scala, Milan, 1932).
